    For some reason, I spend all evening wasting

    time online, then I decide midnight is a good time to start cleaning the house. I should really just go to sleep

    why do they call it being a "night owl".

    .. why not a "night elephant" or "night snail"?

    I stay up late thinking about things

    that break my heart and drive me to distraction, but somehow I can't stop. The world is so broken and somehow I can't stop telling myself it's my responsibility to fix everything for everyone. I bear the weight of the world and the world doesn't notice I exist. why can't I just...

    I think waking up whole night has affected my

    depression coping abilities and happiness.All bad luck happened since I sleep in the morning since 2012.I am going to change this habit and move towards a positive lifestyle and happiness. Waking up late made me antisocial,over sensitive,negative,unlucky and unhappy. I hate sun...

    I am very much a night owl.

    It's only after the sun goes down that I really feel alive, and I find it much harder to sleep at night than by day. There's just something about the night time that I find so quiet and serene. The only trouble is that my current job is mostly day shifts so I have to get by...

    I don't really fully wake up

    until 6 in the evening. That's when I have energy. I lay awake while my family sleeps at night. I am my best me at night. I'm more creative when the sun goes down and the world stops for a moment.

    It's that kind of night

    where I'm tired, but I don't want to sleep! But I'm too tired to actually do anything. Sigh! This is almost every night for me. either this, or I just can't sleep cause I'm not tired lol. Never a normal night!

    I think it's just how i was born.

    I sleep the day away, and party all night through. Oh, and by party I mean sit in my bed, posting blogs, doing online shopping, watching netflix, and eating twice my body weight. Being a night owl is a privilege.

    I hate day-time. Too many people around,

    makes it very hard for me to concentrate and relax. LOVE the night! So quiet and peaceful, everyone sleeping, no one around, it's so good. No pressure. It's just you and the universe.

    The darnedest things are posted online

    when one stays up into the wee hours of the morning. Though the feeling of sleep deprivation often caused by the lifestyle of a night owl is almost an intoxicating high of a sort. One's actions are more natural, and their words less formal. The mind is less occupied by the worry...

    There is a condition called Delayed Sleep Phase

    syndrome that may explain many of us, but I also think it might not be so much a disorder as evolution sometimes.

    i like night. the dark.

    the quiet. the lack of human interaction. its when i am calmest... but there is also a darker side (see what i did there? darker? ok never mind) night is when i finally let myself think. this is not a good thing but i am not oblivious enough to deny the fact i am self...

    but I always feel more alive at night. I become restless, happier, and it just feels amazing.
